Electromagnetic coupling can occur between the monopolar “Bovie” instrument and other laparoscopic instruments without direct contact by a phenomenon termed antenna coupling. The purpose of this study was to determine if, and to what extent, radiofrequency energy couples to other common laparoscopic instruments and to describe practical steps that can minimize the magnitude of antenna coupling. In a laparoscopic simulator, monopolar radiofrequency energy was delivered to an L-hook. The tips of… CONTINUE READING
